A job interview gives you the opportunity to showcase your qualifications to an employer, so it pays to have everything you might need. The following information provides some helpful hints.
- Social Security card.
- Government-issued identification (driver’s license).
- Résumé. Although not all employers require applicants to bring a résumé, you should be able to furnish the interviewer information about your education, training, and previous employment.
- References. Employers typically require three references. Get permission before using anyone as a reference. Make sure that they will give you a good reference. Try to avoid using relatives as references.
- Transcripts. Employers may require an official copy of transcripts to verify grades, coursework, dates of attendance, and highest grade completed or degree awarded.
